A Campus Community
Emeritus at Skylyn Place is one of the only continuum of care retirement communities in the region offering the full range of living options. So our residents can remain right here for virtually any level of care they need – and in fact, many of our residents have taken advantage of this option.
Our beautiful 18-acre campus, with its wooded areas, professional landscaping, and lovely walking trails, offers:
- Spacious Independent Living apartments with one- two- and three-bedroom units.
- Assisted living apartments for those who need a little extra help with everyday activities.
- Dedicated Memory Care apartments to serve residents with Alzheimer’s, dementia and other memory impairments.
- A skilled nursing facility to provide the highest level of care to residents who need it most.
The Perfect Location
Conveniently located on the east side of Spartanburg, just across from Mary Black Memorial Hospital, Emeritus at Skylyn Place has a country feel, but offers easy access to all that this area has to offer. Publix and Fresh Market are just minutes away, as are many medical office buildings.
The Chapman Cultural Center, located downtown, is Spartanburg’s center for all kinds of performing and visual arts, science and history. Here, residents can stroll through the Regional History Museum, the Spartanburg Science Center and SAM Art Gallery, where they can enjoy art exhibitions from international, national and regional artists.They can also attend performances at its two theaters, including the 500-seat David Reid Theatre and a classic black box theater for smaller productions. There are also several colleges in the immediate area, where residents are welcome to audit classes.
Should residents wish to travel outside of the area, we can easily take them to upstate South Carolina, just 30 minutes away, with its beautiful mountain scenery. The Bob Jones Museum of Art is in Greenville, 35 miles from our community. Greenville is also home to our residents’ favorite minor league baseball team, the Greenville Drive.

All residents have access to several common areas, including sitting areas on each floor and a spacious living room, with a grand piano and aquarium. We also offer a private parlor and a well-stocked library. Our Assisted Living residents also have their own Great Room for activities, relaxation and conversation with other community members.

Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
Here at Emeritus at Skylyn Place, we offer the full range of physical, occupational and speech therapy services, provided by the Westin Group on site. Of course, residents are welcome to use any other therapy provider in the area – it’s always their choice.
For our skilled nursing and memory care residents, we have a physician and nurse practitioner on staff that provide care right here; they are also welcome to see their own physicians. And every three months, a podiatrist provides care onsite for any resident needing foot care.
Should a resident require hospice, we can recommend many outstanding hospice providers in the area, which will provide services right in the resident’s own apartment.
Residents are also given a membership to Trinity Health and Fitness, located across the street.
Should you take a tour of our community, you’d immediately notice our “staff wall,” a showcase of all of our dedicated staff members who have been here 10 years or more. Right now, there are about 20 photos pinned on the wall – a testament to the loyalty and commitment of our staff. They embrace the family values that are the hallmark of Emeritus, always treating residents like they are family – because they are! Our staff truly appreciates working for a company, like Emeritus, that has a clear mission and instills in them the dedication to live those values in every way, every day.
Going beyond the call of duty, exceeding expectations, treating residents with the dignity they deserve are just a few of the caring attributes that our staff possess. For example, our caregivers know when a resident’s loved ones are out of town. So they step right in, taking over any tasks that the family member might have performed.
We are also well equipped to care for all of our residents, including those with serious health issues, with registered nurses, certified nursing assistants and Med Techs on staff. Our community also takes its activities seriously! We have three full-time Life Enrichment. And with six dining rooms, we have a large waitstaff and several incredible chefs!
